When it comes to furniture I like what I like. That happens to be lots of curves and details. You know, bells and whistles. :)
One thing I like about doing what I do is
being forced getting the opportunity to move outside of my comfort zone. I'm not a huge fan of mid century furniture, and this is NOT going to be a post about me being converted either. ;) I'm just not a simple, straight lines kind of gal.
BUT, this little bookshelf did grow on me. I must admit, it does have a cute little shape and paint did wonders for it.
Are you wondering why it looks like this? Well, it fell out of the car on the way to my house! Not my car! I totally had nothing to do with it (for once)! :) I guess the back door wasn't closed all the way, so when he turned the corner it slid right out of the car onto the road! It's nothing a little wood glue and a few clamps couldn't fix, so we're all good.
I love this charcoal color. It's modern and upscale and a little softer than black.
By the way, when I dusted the floor with a damp cloth the water froze as a film over the floor because it's still so stinking cold here-still below zero!! I endured frozen fingers, again!, for these pics. ;)
It's actually going to be used to house a kaleidoscope collection. How fun is that! She opted to keep the back white to really show them off (and her husband hated the idea of turquoise, haha).
I love these simple antique silver knobs, and I found them at my local hardware store. Can't beat that!
